"By Moonlight"

“By Moonlight”

We’re all mysterious
By moonlight, so hush
Now and sleep so I can
Watch you. 

I love the way your eyelashes
Flutter against your cheek,
Eyes dancing behind eyelids
Caked in mocha shadow and the 
Smeared eyeliner you 
Forgot to wash off again. 

I’d like to think that you’re
Dreaming of me, but you don’t
Even know I’m here.

  1. Beautiful poem and the twist at the end is tragic or farcical, or both. LOved this.

  2. Is it okay to post some of this on my site if I include a backlink to this page?
